Coraline (2009) Horror Genre

221005-185617-381000

I tried to add Horror to Coraline. Because why not? The book (by horror writer Neil Gaiman) it's based on is horror genre which literally won several awards for being a horror YA novel.

I wouldn't consider Coraline horror and I don't think most people would. Neil Gaimen isn't a horror writer. He's a fantasy writer. Of the three awards that I can see Coraline winning, only the Bram Stoker award would be considered horror.

People are making assumptions that I'm the only one to think Coraline is a horror film.

Hi Tsarstepan-

We really appreciate your insight on this. But as per our guidelines definition, we would not consider Coraline to be a horror movie.

Cheers!
